    Hello my fellow San Diego anglers! I have never been to Miramar and heard there is a 5 foot drop off at the end of the boat launch ramp. I don't want to take a chance launching my boat if it might fall off the end of the ramp.
    I have a Tracker 175.. Anyone have any insight? I'd greatly appreciate any info.
    Thanks!
    Brett (RamonaAngler)

    You should have no problem if the water level is up. I have been there where my back trailer tire is about 2 feet from the edge of where the cement ramp drops off. I usually take my kayak up there and have seen guys in small boats launch when no way could a large bass boat launch. Like I said....if the water level is good....you will not have any problems.
    That lake is known for water level rising and dropping in short periods of time. It was several years back where I stopped by the lake on a Sunday because Deb wanted to feed the ducks(and of course I wanted to check the ramp)......that very next weekend the water dropped like crazy and was barely able to launch as thankfully my buddy helped guide me.
    Brett, if you are bored...just take a drive out there and check it out and then hit it the next day.

    Problem Vinny is they fluctuate the water so much in one day it might be at the bottom of the ramp. That said I have launched many times with out issue except once, when I was out fishing I noticed the water falling quick. I went back just in time to get my boat out with little room to spare. Single axle are easier than duels, I really don't think it's an issue unless the water is on the lower side.

    As long as the waters up you’re good..we’ve launched when the water was low..when they put a cone infront of the ramp..but the sign on it didn’t say you can’t launch..anyway one launched one watched the trailer tires..but as others have said if the waters up you’re good to go

    I've been burned by Miramar a couple times...I've gone by there the day before a fishing trip to check the ramp level, and low and behold, it was lowered below the ramp the following day! I've asked people there if they get water level warnings and all I got back was crickets! I mostly float tube it now!

    He said there wasn't that many boats out fishing but I'll bet a lot of fisherman didn't even realize it was open on Memorial Day

    I would suggest if you plan on launching solo or backing down the ramp with no help. I would place some kind of object on the dock adjacent to the ramp. In order to visually Indicate the very leading edge before the ledge of the ramp. Also, watch out for the people whom are feeding the ducks that never seem to be paying attention.

    I have an 18.5' Tracker and launch at Miramar all the time. You'll be fine.

    Unless they lower it and you won't be fine! They tend to do what they want with the water level!

    Right. Call ahead to concessions is not a bad idea. That said, I've been 3 times this month no issues.
